WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW:

Personal Mission Statement: Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.

Passions after 5PM: Chasing around my toddler son! Love to cook new foods, sometimes unsuccessfully, with my husband, walking around our neighborhood in North Tacoma, watching volleyball and cheering my alma mater (Go Viks!), listening to podcasts, binge listening the latest audiobook from the library.

You’ll never catch me: Turning down an opportunity to learn something new.

The bottom line: The only way to do great work is to love what you do. I truly love this profession and hope that my passion will inspire those around me, including clients and others in the profession!
